Forever Friends

First of all - thank you Suzanne for making me bringing out my SU markers again (that I do love so much). The reason is that this TIOT is all about watercolouring - using water colours, SU markers, distress inks.....well - anything that goes with water ;-)

When I first got my SU markers from my sweet friend Elizabeth in Chicago - I was not sure if I was going to like them. You see - I started colouring with my regular aquarelle colours (that I used for paintings earlier) when I started with cardmaking (fall-07). Then Elizabeth told me that I could get the aquarelle touch using the SU markers and water. Well - she was right and from then on I just could not live without them.
Then I needed of course to try copics - as you have seen in my previous postings for some months now ;-) I guess - a girl can't have enough colouring options - it's like make-up - you need to try the latest product on the market - right???

Anyway - back to this weeks TIOT. I decided to make a folder card this time. So I got my pink cardstock out and the DPs from Basic Grey Sugar collection. Chalked around the edges with pine cone ink. I coloured the brand new "Nuts for you" image from the VC collection with my SU markers and aqua paint brush. Burnt the edges - well- it still smells like fire indoors ;-))
Added her on 3d dots on the different DP layers. Glued her to the folder card - note - not the whole part.
The three hearts are from SU. Stamped them with Memento Ink - Rich Cocoa - as well as the Susanament "Forever Friends". Added Prima roses and Bella Baubles.
Here's a picture of the inside and from the side- note the velcro on the lower part. One piece is also behind the image. This makes it easy to open and close the folder card - almost like a little purse.

Hope you would like to play along. If so - please upload your card to SCS or PCP using the keyword "TIOT20".

Happy Tuesday everyone and to my cousin Helené in Vienna - Happy Birthday sweetie!
